Describe Saudi Arabia in one or two word(s):

Hi Friends,

Much has been told about this country. People have shared their good experiences (mostly in brief) and the not-so-good ones (in detail). So, I thought of asking you all, what comes first to your mind when you hear the name of this country Saudi Arabia.

Note: Please answer / describe it in one or two word(s) only.

It's an Arabic slang meaning "Let it go.". usually said about matters; not persons.
